I have two questions. Can we write jobs in EJB? I mean the one like cron jobs in Unix.If so, how? I'm using web logic as application server.

Second question is: I've a job that runs every 5 seconds. It's written as a EJB. And it's available in a clustered environment.

I would like to know how can we avoid running the same job on multiple servers in a clustered environment? I mean, if job is running on one server, it should not run on other servers in a clustered environment.

Clustering is used for high availability and failover. Why do you not wish your EJB to have these?

Hi,

I don't think u cannot use EJB as crown job.
Use quartz [ http://www.opensymphony.com/quartz/ ] as scheduler.
It can trigger EJB for any business.

HTH,

Hi,

My suggestion would be , have a DB entry ,whenever job runs.
DB will be common for the all the cluster instances.

HTH,
